Hamilton, Alonso penalised for Malaysia duel

By on Sunday, April 10, 2011

Apr.10 (GMM) Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso have both been penalised following their stoush in the Malaysian grand prix.

McLaren's Hamilton drops from seventh to eighth after stewards ruled he "made more than one change of direction" whilst dicing with Alonso, his former teammate.

And Ferrari driver Alonso also received a post-race drive-through penalty - 20 seconds added to his race finishing time - for "causing a collision" when he drove into Hamilton's rear.

But the Spaniard keeps his sixth place.

"He just clipped me with his wing and broke my car's rear floor. I don't how much downforce that lost me. Today wasn't the greatest of days," said Hamilton.
